The X-Files is most definitely set to return, though it seems the truth will have to wait until 2018.
Fox has confirmed its fall schedule, revealing that among the renewed and axed shows, The X-Files will not be back until midseason next year.
The cult show returned last year for a limited run, and has been much anticipated for another run since. It should hit screens at the same time as Ryan Murphy’s latest show 9-1-1.
The 11th season of The X-Files was confirmed last month, with creator Chris Carter back as a showrunner and executive producer.
It will have a 10-episode run, as opposed to last season’s six, Fox president David Madden adding: “Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows.
“And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide.
“Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files.”
It’s among a slew of renewed Fox shows that have just been announced, though there have been a number of shifts. Gotham will now move from Mondays to Thursdays, while Empire is shifting to 8pm on Wednesdays.
However, the channel has axed Scream Queens after two seasons.
